ON DEMAND: Sealing Eviction Records So You Can Rent Again

  • How to look up past eviction records
  • Which records are eligible to be sealed (removed from the public record)
  • What the process is to ask to have records sealed
  • How to petition a court to seal the records
  • How sealing the records can help with obtaining housing
